I set up my numerous Sonos products in our new house after installing a new Linksys mesh WiFi system, which provides awesome coverage and speed everywhere. Music drops-out and drops-in frequently when the rooms are paired. It’s infuriating.
I bought a Sonos Boost and set up SonosNet. I had the same issues despite Sonos speakers in nearly every room, which should have been more than enough for Sonos to set up its own strong mesh network. This also is not a great solution. I have a Sonos Move which I specifically bought to play out on the patio and to be in sync with the indoor music. Sonos Move doesn’t work on SonosNet, which makes it not that much better outside than my $50 bluetooth speaker. Seeing as though SonosNet didn’t fix the problem, I’m back to WiFi with the same issues.
Has anyone been able to resolve this? I’m a few thousand bucks into a Sonos system and over a thousand bucks for strong reliable wifi everywhere, and I’m pulling my hair out because trying to listen to more than one ‘room’ at a time is infuriating. Thanks for any help you’re able to provide!
